An evangelical Christian couple from Alberta, Canada, said that their application to adopt a child was rejected by the government because they do not agree with gay marriage.
The couple, who weren’t named in the legal documents, have filed a discrimination case against Alberta, claiming that their religious views on marriage being a union between a man and a woman were targeted, CBC News reported.
“The casework supervisor explained that our religious beliefs regarding sexuality were incompatible with the adoption process,” an affidavit calling for a judicial review of the government’s decision said.
“The casework supervisor said this stance was the ‘official position of the Alberta government.'”
The evangelical couple were asked how they would handle a child who reveals to them that he or she is questioning his or her sexuality, and they responded by saying that sexuality should not be “experienced or explored until a person is an adult and is married.”
The husband and wife insisted that they treat all people with respect, however, and that their views would not hinder them from providing a loving, secure and happy home to a child.
